Abstract

We present an automated method for updating existing long-running precipitation series in near-real time. Our analyses confirm the trend towards significantly drier summers in the south-east of England and significantly wetter winters in the west of Scotland. In 2000 England and Wales saw the wettest April since records began in 1766 and record-breaking daily precipitation in several regions in October led to the wettest autumn on record.
